Ex-Trump attorney Cohen hands over new documents to Congress

Trump Revives Old Battle Cry Against 2020 Democrats: Socialism

Though Cohen told Congress last week that he had never asked for nor would accept a pardon from Trump, a lawyer for Cohen expressed interest to the Trump legal team in a possible pardon for his client in the aftermath of a raid last April on Cohen's hotel room, home and office, according to people familiar with the encounter who weren't authorized to discuss it by name and spoke on the condition of anonymity.

Sekulow has denied wrongdoing, saying in a statement after the hearing that the "testimony by Michael Cohen that attorneys for the President edited or changed his statement to Congress to alter the duration of the Trump Tower Moscow negotiations is completely false".

There are a host of topics that lawmakers are interested in hearing from Cohen about, including his public testimony about overhearing a conversation between Trump and longtime confidante Roger Stone involving a WikiLeaks' email dump, presidential pardons, and Cohen's public testimony that the Southern District of NY could be investigating his conversations with Trump.

Earlier in the day, Cohen testified before a USA congressional committee in a closed-door session a week after his public testimony which included allegations that Trump was involved in criminal conduct before and while in the Oval Office. He has provided additional documents to the committee.

Cohen shared documents with lawmakers showing edits made to written testimony he provided to Congress in 2017, saying that an unsuccessful plan by Trump to build a tower in Moscow ended in January 2016, a congressional source said, confirming reports by CNN and the New York Times.

President Donald Trump's former lawyer on Wednesday returned to Capitol Hill for a fourth day of testimony as Democrats pursue a flurry of investigations into Trump's White House, businesses and presidential campaign.




Cohen's lawyer, Lanny Davis, said in a statement that Cohen has now spent 16 hours testifying before the intelligence committee. "Mr. Cohen responded to all questions truthfully and has agreed at the request of chairman Schiff to provide additional information in the future, if needed. He remains committed to telling the truth and cooperating with authorities". During last week's public testimony before the Oversight panel, he called Trump a "con man", a "cheat" and a "racist".

Another source familiar with the records and close to Cohen said, "He wrote the first version".

Trump's son arranged the meeting after being promised "dirt" on Trump's Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton. He later admitted he had been expecting intelligence on Clinton.

Cohen has become a key figure in congressional investigations after turning on his former boss and cooperating with special counsel Robert Mueller's probe. Trump has denied collusion and obstruction, Russian Federation has denied election interference.

In last week's hearing, Cohen alleged that Trump played a role in hush money payments to women that may have violated campaign finance laws.
